Deepak Chahar in action for CSK.(AP)
Deepak Chahar is expected to return to fitness in the next couple of weeks and won’t be available. Here is CSK’s likely XI for their IPL 2023 match.
Top of the table Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on the Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Sawai Mansingh stadium in Jaipur on April 27. CSK have so far won five and lost two of their seven games. They will be looking for their fourth consecutive win in the game against RR. The Dhoni-led side lost the season opener against Gujarat Titans. But they bounced back in style against the Lucknow Super Giants in their first home game of the season. The Super Kings then made it two wins in a row as they beat Mumbai Indians by seven wickets at the Wankhede Stadium. CSK narrowly lost the reverse fixture to the Rajasthan Royals at Chepauk by 3 runs. CSK then got back to winning ways as they beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore in a tense finish at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Last time out, CSK beat KKR comprehensively in Kolkata by 49 runs as their batters smashed the ball all over the park to make it three wins in a row.
Ajinkya Rahane’s whirlwind 71*(29), Shivam Dube’s blistering 50 (21) coupled with Conway’s stylish 56 (40) powered CSK to a mammoth 235/4. A collective bowling effort saw the bowlers pick up regular wickets and restrict KKR to 186/8 to achieve a comprehensive win. CSK would be happy with the consistency of their batters as they have been one of the best batting sides in the league so far.
